Four Nigerian health workers jailed for abusing 89-Year-old patient in UK

Four Nigerian healthcare workers, namely Ame, Morounranti, Danny, and Bridget, were incarcerated by a court in Wolverhampton, United Kingdom, after their apprehension and subsequent conviction for the negligence and abuse of an elderly patient, aged 89, which was captured on secret recordings.

The elderly woman who died in October, according to a BBC report, was allegedly the victim of physical and emotional maltreatment.

The families of the aged patient were reported to have secretly installed a camera in the patient’s room after noticing varying marks and bruises on the 89-year-old woman.

Eight care assistants had initially been charged before only four, Ame Tunkara, Morounranti Adefila, Danny Ohen, and Bridget Aideyan were found guilty and sentenced at Wolverhampton Crown Court.

Tunkara, 33, of Walsall, and Adefila, 43, of Wolverhampton, were found guilty of ill-treatment and wilful neglect and sentenced on December 8 to four months in prison.

Ohen, 39, and Aideyan, 49, both from Wolverhampton, were also found guilty of the same offences and sentenced to six months and four months, respectively, on November 14.

Det Con Kathryn Sargent said: “This elderly woman sadly died in October and should not have spent any of her remaining years suffering such ill-treatment.”

David Atherton, a journalist and frequent contributor to the BBC, ITV, BBC Radio, TalkTV, and GBNews, tweeted on Friday morning: “Four Nigerian healthcare workers have been found guilty of abusing an 89-year-old woman with vascular dementia in Wolverhampton.

“Ame Tunkara, 33 & Morounranti Adefila, 43 jailed for 4 months. Last Sept Danny Ohen, 39 & Bridget Aideyan, 49, were jailed for 6 months & 4 months.
